# Python: Rescale and shift numbers so that they cover the range [0, 1]

## Python Programming Puzzles: Exercise-32 with Solution

Write a Python program to rescale and shift numbers in a given list, so that they cover the range [0, 1].

Input: [18.5, 17.0, 18.0, 19.0, 18.0] Output: [0.75, 0.0, 0.5, 1.0, 0.5] Input: [13.0, 17.0, 17.0, 15.5, 2.94] Output: [0.7155049786628734, 1.0, 1.0, 0.8933143669985776, 0.0]

**Sample Solution:**

**Python Code:**

```
def test(nums):
a = min(nums)
b = max(nums)
if b - a == 0:
return [0.0] + [1.0] * (len(nums) - 1)
for i in range(len(nums)):
nums[i] = (nums[i] - a) / (b - a)
return nums
nums = [18.5, 17.0, 18.0, 19.0, 18.0]
print("Original list:")
print(nums)
print("Rescale and shift the numbers of the said list so that they cover the range [0, 1]:")
print(test(nums))
nums = [13.0, 17.0, 17.0, 15.5, 2.94]
print("\nOriginal list:")
print(nums)
print("Rescale and shift the numbers of the said list so that they cover the range [0, 1]:")
print(test(nums))
```

Sample Output:

Original list: [18.5, 17.0, 18.0, 19.0, 18.0] Rescale and shift the numbers of the said list so that they cover the range [0, 1]: [0.75, 0.0, 0.5, 1.0, 0.5] Original list: [13.0, 17.0, 17.0, 15.5, 2.94] Rescale and shift the numbers of the said list so that they cover the range [0, 1]: [0.7155049786628734, 1.0, 1.0, 0.8933143669985776, 0.0]
